I haven't had any Conch chowder or fritters in Florida since I moved back to N.J. 35 years ago. While on Key West in February, we went to Alonzo's Oyster Bar for lunch and saw both on the menu. First the location on the water is fantastic as we sat on the outside deck watching all the fishing boats as... More

Worth the wait for a table, especially at Happy Hour. I don't eat oysters, but I love their clam chili, smoked fish dip, shrimp, drinks, etc. Even had a great steak here. Pleasant staff. Getting a seat at the bar can be hard, but there are tables inside and out. Great for people watching, views of the the Historic Seaport,... More

To start we were created by one of the best servers we have had I. A long time. Her name is Amber and our experience was much better because of her. Her smiling face and laugh during the busiest hours ensuring us all will be good. We ordered conch chowder, steak and blue salad, fish dip and of course several... More

Stopped in for half price drinks and appetizers. What a deal! I was really busy, but the food was pretty good, and the service was good considering how harried the wait staff was!

Visited this restaurant for dinner Feb 20th 2017. We have been there once before for their great happy hour in 2012 and the appetizers and drinks were good in 2012. In 2017 we had a mixed experience. Conch Fritters - good Conch Ceviche Salad - most pieces were tough, a few soft ones leading me to believe most was older... More

We ate here in November on a friend's recommendation, so it was the first place we wanted to visit upon returning in February! Come early and get a seat outside. EXCELLENT people watching! Drinks and apps are half-price during Happy Hour. I recommend the Buffalo Shrimp as well as the Onion Straws. I agree with some other reviewers that the... More

Great food and outside dining. Not as crowded as most of the other in town restaurants. Ate there several times and each meal was consistently good. My wife and I both enjoyed the salads: the shrimp ate is salad and the salad with crab meat. Hearty excellent salad options. I also had the fish and chips one night...superb!!!

So you walk the dock and its your starting point or the furthest point. Make this your stop for Happy Hour. It does get crowed, but from 1630 to 1830, it has some of the best seafood around. Oysters, Steam Shrimp, Bucket of Steamed Clams and the list goes on. Recently they added steak salad that incredible. Then to top... More

A whole lot of raves - it was only okay. We had fresh oyster and fried food. Underwhelming. Was disappointed that waitress chose the type of oysters she thought we should have

I enjoyed the location of Alonzo's on the Waterfront, an easy walk from the Ferry Terminal. I had just completed a day at Fort Jefferson and I was in need of food and drink. Alonzo's still had their Happy Hour going on, so I decided to order lots of half priced appetizers and mojitos until cut off, which was 6PM.... More
